I am new to the building bit, there are several ways to finish a reciever. I need to know the different ways and what about just using perma blue on it?

I just did a Romanian kit receiver. The kit was real nice and didnt need finishing so i only did the receiver to match. I used Birchwood-Casey product called parmablue paste (in a tube) The stuff really worked nice and matches perfect. Just make sure you sand blast the thing first to get the dark blue/black color.
its the bottom gun..

brownells alumahyde II works great.

I sparyed over the kit parts so everything would match. After many rounds the alumahyde still holds up. The only downside is it takes about a week to cure. This is the dark parkerize gray color.

If you go the cheap route, this is the Duplicolor Ceramic hi temp engine paint from Walmart. Cost me like 5 bucks. Baked it in the over for a couple of hours.

Do you guys spray everything as a single unit after assembly? I would think that some parts (receiver cover, safety/selector arm, bolt/handle) would be done seperately before assembly, but that it would be tough do the receiver and barrel asy seperately, assemble, then get a decent matching finish on the rivet heads.

Removed furniture, disassembled, sprayed cover, gas tube, barrel+receiver asmbly, and selector seperately.

I just got my Molyresin from the UPS today,
look forward to using it. Bought a nice little compressor
from HF for $30 and an airbrush from Big Lotts for $7
Got an AMD and an AMD Bullpup to finish
Going out of town this weekend but will post pix
when they are done.
Got the Flat black, wanted the Park but these are
EVIL BLACK RIFLES so had to wait on that
Just did my Pole underfolder in Park Durabake
it looks good, but seemed kinda soft at first but
seems to have toughened up with a little time.

You will love the Molyresin and how it comes out. Just make sure that you heat the part you are going to coat so that the carrier will flash off quickly and not run. Don't let the wife catch you baking it in her oven. I bought a quart a year ago and have refinished 16 guns with it and still have 1/3 of it left. It is some great tough stuff.
